Before & After Remodel

May 2nd, 2015 · 5 Comments

Before Living Room.  The house was purchased for $125,000.

After Living Room.  They tried selling it for $200,000 but priced too high.  Then at $175,000 with no offers; still priced too high.  It eventually sold at $155,000.  Marginal profit at that price.  Lesson hopefully learned.

Didn’t Get the Memo

April 10th, 2015 · 1 Comment

It is highly recommended that you straighten up your house before selling.  And remove visual distractions, like Spider-Man blankets.

Repeat…no visual distractions, like Arizona Cardinals football blankets.  Or a bra on the bed.  Or wolf bedspreads.

Please turn off the TV, clean the ceiling fan blades, and unknot the curtains.  Yes, we see you, Mr. Socks, sitting on the bed.

Please remove kisses and frosting on the windows.  And maybe remove the mirrors from around the bathtub.

Please remove the vacuum, the shelves (with full encyclopedia set) blocking the window, the blanket blocking the other window.  And the bicycle, the wind chime, and the dream catchers.

Please turn off the TV.

Please remove the dogs.

Please remove the hangers and the flyswatter.  And unknot the curtains.

Short On Staging

March 24th, 2015 · 5 Comments

Another quality short sale!

The owners are hoping the bank will let them sell it for less than what they owe.

Therefore, you would think the sellers would present their home in the best possible way.

After all, they are asking a huge favor from their bank.
